IA. • - Thousands of lowans spend their summer weekends in trailers. campers and tents, hut if you live near a navigable river and nun a power bn;U or cah- i ii rruiser. your outdoor weekend may have a different flavor. You can travel in style on water with the cool river hrep/e in your face anrl, at about the same cost as cross- country travel, you can spend your nights in comfort in an air-cooled motel room. On one recent weekend, a "family flotilla" of five Dubuque families — a score of persons aged 2 to fifl — took a Winona MINNESOTA WISCONSIN Jrempealeau Genoa i, lynxville lOWfl McGregor N Guftenberg -y, __ Teen-agers (ravel up the Mississippi as adults follow on a cabin cruiser. i The flotilla's dip— from Duhuque to Winona, Minn., and hack. •t 0 0-m i I e round-trip jaunt from Dubuque to Winona, Minn. The group included Dr.< and Mrs. Roger Klauer and Iheir children, Pamela, 17, Roger, jr., 16, and Kamy, 14; and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Marget and Michael, 18, John, 16, Steven, 13, and .Susie, 10.

On the way, the teen-agers went water skiing behind the power boats, and the cruisers followed. rpHE flotilla reached Mo JL Gregor early Friday evening. The group went by ferry to Indian Isle for dinner and spent the night at the TV Violence Every Hour (Rod8l*'s HMIlh Bulletin) The average child has watched some 20,000 hours of television by the time he reaches adolescence. One study indicates that he may have seen one violent death for every hour of viewing. Kogcr Khmer, jr., and Mrs. Ang Keeper, left, are getting ready to water ski.

After going through locks at Lynxville, Genoa and Trempealeau — all in Wisconsin — they reached Winona Saturday evening. Sunday was spent sight- seeing. The Klauers loured the College of St. Theresa at Winona, where Pamela will be a freshman this fall. A t Winona, the group stayed at. the Holiday Inn overnight, and with a (5 a.m. start Monday, reached Du- btique by 8 o'clock that evening. The parents, especially the fathers, agreed that the trip was one o/ the best family outings they'd ever had. 3 Floart of QUALITY FURNITURE For Entry Roam lit Your Homt Hints For Sick Mother VOMI- Rnhti and Mine Hy .Myrtle Meyer Elrired T HE PLIGHT of the mot her with two sick children, 'no husband in town, and she .so sick she couldn't lift her head, brought a goodly response. These were either questioning or helpful. Here are two. Dear Mrs. Eldred: Why doesn't this mother buy some TV trays and. when she cooks, let her fill them every now and then and keep them on hand for emergencies? And also several containers 0 f wholesome. vegetable soups and some bouillon rubes? And she could always havp fro/en orange juice. It's a great relief lo a troubled mind to have these supplies on hand. And we always keep extra bread in the frecx.- er. —Mrs. C. M. B. • • • Dear Mrs. Eldred: I wonder what, kind of a husband would go out of town on bust- ness and leave a wife with two small children and only enough food for a few days? Apparently no money, or she. could have spent 2?> cents to have some groceries delivered. You failed to mention lhat she might have called a minister. Through him, she could have gotten temporary help. Also, concerning Mrs. D. G. T. and her daughter who is deaf, 1 feel she must be a very selfish mother to have failed to send her daughter to a school for the deaf when she was of school age. The poor child has missed three years of educational opportunity. —Mrs. ,J. L. • • • I DID NOT GET the feeling that this mother was so poor lhat she could not get. groceries. I felt that she was so ill that she had lost all initiative and did not know wherejo turn lor help. I am "SHIP she" was not Ihink'ing very clearly or she would have come up with some of the solutions that all of us have offered to her. As for the deaf child, you must reali/e how hard it would he to send away to a school out-of-town a child of only 5 or 6 years. I don't think these three years will hp lost if the mother now gets in touch with a school of the deaf and sees that her daughter makes use of its advantages. • • • A mother writes: Dear Mrs. Eldred: My deaf child has alreadv had two years of preschool training. HP has a vocabulary of about 1 no words. My plea is thai people take the time to talk lo a deaf child. My hoy is bright and alerl, and he doesn't re«ili/e he. has a handicap. I know there will come a time when he will learn signs and linger speech so he can communicate with oi hers like himself. But how will he understand people with whom he will have to live the rest, of his life? People shy away from a deaf child when they ought lo l;ilk to him and give him con- H E MUST HAVE a modicum of hearing, or else Iv 1 could not loarn and speak so many words. So a hearing aid '.nil bring him into com- municalinn with hearing persons. Also, he should learn signs, linger speech, lip reading and speech. This is I he full program tor such a child, i hope I made that clear.
